Teslagrad, Rain Games' 2D puzzle-platformer that sadly isn't a course based on 1980s rock band Tesla, is coming to PS4 in a boxed edition. The new physical editions are also headed to previously announced platforms of Wii U, PS3, Vita and PC, and publisher Soedesco has confirmed a US release. Rain says to expect copies to be available in Q4.
Teslagrad is set in a steampunk-inspired take on "old Europe," and there's certainly plenty of Eastern European imagery on show, as well as an array of gears, tesla coils and what have you. As for how it plays, there's clearly a bit of Metroid to its electric array of collectible items and its mixture of puzzle-platforming and combat. If you'd prefer to try it now rather than wait for the new ports, it's already out on Steam and avaialble for $10.
Norwegian game developer Rain Games and Dutch multiplatform publisher SOEDESCO are happy to announce a physical version for Teslagrad, which will be available Q4 2014 for PlayStation 3®, PlayStation 4®, Wii U™, PlayStation Vita™ and PC. After the great success of the IndieBox's limited handcrafted boxed edition, the popular puzzle platformer is about to reach new distribution channels with the assistance of an experienced partner. "We at SOEDESCO are very happy to work with Rain Games. We hope that we can share the magic of Teslagrad with everyone this year when it hits retail" said Hans van Brakel, Product Manager at Soedesco.
Teslagrad is a puzzle platformer with action elements, where magnetism and other electromagnetic powers are the key to go throughout the game, and thereby discover the secrets kept in the long abandoned Tesla Tower. Gain new abilities to explore a non-linear world with more than 100 beautiful hand-drawn environments, in a steampunk-inspired vision of old Europe. Unravel the story of the young boy who suddenly finds himself embroiled in a long-forgotten conspiracy, involving the despotic king who has ruled the nation with an iron fist for several years. Jump into an outstanding adventure told through voiceless storytelling, writing your own part. Armed with ancient Teslamancer technology and your own ingenuity and creativity, your path lies through the decrepit Tesla Tower and beyond.
